OUR BELOVED SMM FAIR IS BACK!
IT IS ALWAYS A NICE WAY TO ENJOY TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. YOU ALWAYS RUN INTO SOMEONE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN A WHILE AND IT BRINGS BACK SUCH FOND MEMORIES.
I, COACH GAY, HAVE THE AWESOME JOB OF FAIR STAFFING COORDINATOR WHICH MEANS I GET TO CHAT WITH EACH OF YOU FOR AT LEAST A FEW MINUTES DURING THE FAIR. BUT MY JOB ALSO REQUIRES ME TO ASK FOR YOUR HELP.
SO I AM ASKING THAT YOU TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO READ THE PARAGRAPHS BELOW AND SIGN UP FOR YOUR DESIRED SLOTS. I PROMISE YOU, NONE OF THE WORK IS DIFFICULT. IN FACT, IT IS QUITE ENJOYABLE.
THIS YEAR WE ARE ASKING OUR SMM PARENTS TO WORK THREE HOUR SHIFTS - ONE SHIFT PER CHILD FOR A MAXIMUM OF TWO CHILDREN OR SIX HOURS. THE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEERS NEEDED HAS INCREASED AND WE HAVE ABOUT THE SAME NUMBER OF PARENTS AS LAST YEAR TO FILL THE SPOTS. WE WILL HAVE SIGN-UP ONLINE.
WE REALLY NEED ALL HANDS ON DECK. THE VOLUNTEER WORK THAT YOU PUT IN HAS A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION. OUR SCHOOL BENEFITS TREMENDOUSLY
FROM THE FAIR. AND IT IS SUCH A FUN WAY TO SPEND TIME WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND FRIENDS. AND THE ENTERTAINMENT IS PHENOMENAL.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS MAY VOLUNTEER TO EARN SERVICE HOURS, BUT THEY MAY NOT TAKE THEIR PARENTS' SHIFTS BECAUSE WE NEED ADULTS AT ALL LOCATIONS AT ALL TIMES. ALSO THEY MAY NOT NOT WORK THE GATE ENTRY STATIONS. STUDENTS MUST SIGN-UP ONLINE AS WELL - THEY CANNOT JUST SHOW UP. STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING WITH THEM WHATEVER DOCUMENTATION THAT THEY NEED TO VERIFY THEIR HOURS.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR STUDENTS AND SCHOOL!
WHERE DO I WANT TO VOLUNTEER?
If you have questions about the different venues for volunteering, please email Coach Gay at email@example.com with your questions. She will call and discuss the volunteer opportunities with you.
The big question for many of you is "what do I do at the Gate Entry Area." The Gate Entry area will have a police officer stationed with our volunteers. Our volunteers will simply check to see if those persons entering the fair grounds have the required arm bands, tickets, T-shirts, etc before allowing them entry. This is an extra layer of security to assure that loiterers and people who are not here to enjoy the fair rides are turned away.
Volunteers at the gate will receive instructions in the volunteer room (next to the WSMM Studio) prior to heading to their stations.
Thank you and again, I am ready and able to help you with your questions.
